from special counsel and what this means for the president. [ music playing ] . michael cohen pleads guilty and implicates the president. paul manafort found guilty of financial kiechlts what does all this mean for president trump who the post calls an alleged co-conspirator in the white house. california congressman duncan hunter and his wife indicted for using a quarter of a million of campaign cash to live beyond their means. a college student is found and they charged an undocumented immigrant. it is august 22nd, 5:00 a.m. don's cons, all the president's henchmen. it is an incredible day. stunned, rattled, blindsided, some of what our sources say,
reaction after a pair of top trump aides became convicted felons. cohen, the president's former lawyer pleaded guilty, admitting he coordinated with mr. trump to keep quiet during the campaign, at the same moment the jury held paul manafort on eight counts of crime. top party leaders are quote trying to catch their breath. even the president's supporters see the significance of these convictions. the dredge report calling it trump hell hour the attorney for michael consuggest the president's long-time fixer could have damaging information for the russia investigation. >> michael cohen has information that would be of interest to mr. mueller in his probe of a conspiracy to corrupt american democracy very similar to the indictment of russians. i believe mr. cohen would be
able provide information useful to the special count sell. >> the pea deal means cohen likely faces three-to-five years in prison at his sentencing december 12th. the president's legal team going after what they call cohen's lice and dishonesty. we have more on cohen's plea deal. >> reporter: dave and christine, michael con, president donald trump's former personal attorney and a member of his inner circle pleaded guilty tuesday, admitted that in coordination and at the direction of the president, he acted to keep information that would have been harmful to the campaign from becoming public during the 2016 election. now, of course that information has to do with payments to porn star stormy daniels and former playboy model karen mcdougal. who accused the president of having affairs with them. he denied having affairs with them. the investigation was referred
to new york, where michael cohen pled guilty. this deal does not include any cooperation by michael cohen with federal investigators or prosecutors. now the president's lawyers had this to say that there is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the president in the government's charges against mr. cohen. dave, christine. >> thank you for that the big question is how much trouble might the president be in? a source close to the trump organization, tells cnn, cohen's plea deal, prove he does not have anything damaging on the president. they say essential lynn it's cohen's word against the president's. legal experts say the president is not out of jeopardy. >> i don't even think that happened during watergate that someone pled guilty and said the sitting president was a co-conspirator. now, it is true that there are justice department guidelines that say, a president cannot be
indicted. but this crime could be prosecuted after donald trump leaves office. this crime could be referred to congress as a high crime and misdemeanor. but the fact that we have an admitted felon saying that the sitting president of the united states was his co-conspirator in this felony is a pretty extraordinary piece of news. >> pleading guilty is not cohen's own worry the senate intelligence committee says it wants to speak to him again. mr. cohen was prepared to say mr. trump knew ahead of time. cohen previously testified he was not aware of a meeting before it happened. then the other shoe drops for the white house him paul manafort found guilty on eight counts of bank and tax fraud. a mistrial declared on ten other charges. a source telling cnn the white house was hoping for a fresh verdict to have fresh ammo on
the russian investigation. that's now off the table the president praising manafort as a good man, but at the same distancings from his former campaign chairman. >> i still feel it's a very sad thing that happens. it has nothing to do with washington collusion. this started as russian collusion. this has absolutely nothing to do. it's a witch hunt. it is a disgrace. >> in west virginia last night the president whipped up the crowd with his attack on the special counsel. >> russian witch hunt. we got a whole big combination where is the tlugs? you know, they're still looking for collusion. where is the collusion? find some collusion. >> despite all the devastating news for the president. his supporters still revived some familiar chances at this rally last night.
drain the swamp also echoed through the arena and there is more of it ahead, president trump planning to spent 40 days on the road campaigning for republicans before the mid-terms, which are 76 days. facebook taking down hundreds of pages after finding disinformation campaigns that originated in iran and russia. some posed as a group liberty front press. facebook says the coordinated campaigns had more than a million followers across facebook and instagram. twitter removed 284 accounts, many linked to iran for coordinated manipulation. this comes after microsoft took control of the we believe sites which said russian military intelligence could have tried to use to hack american politicians. a republican congressman duncan hunter and his wife will be aar arraigned in federal court
tomorrow, following charges from using campaign finance money for personal purchases. in one instance, buying clothing at a golf course and re reporting the purchase as balls for wounded warriors. >> they believe the indictment is politically motivated. house speaker ryan removed him during the case. he was the second member to support president trump, the first, chris collins, wolves recently indicted on insider trading charges. it certainly shows a couple living way beyond near means. using campaign money to fill the gap. a devastating end to the search for mollie tibb etc., the 20-year-old iowa college student two disappeared while jogging, they say christine rivera led investigators to her body buried under corn stalks and corn leaves. he now faces first degree murder charges, the suspect an
undocumented immigrant. at least one border state republican quick to pounce. arizona senate candidate kelly ward tweeted the lack of leadership and courage by open border senators like jeff flake and john mccain, republican, mind you, adding #build the wall. cnn affiliate w.h.o. reports the suspect worked for four years at a farm partly owned by craig lange. >> reporter: this is not the ending so many in this community wanted, in fact, it's not many times you go to a news conference and so many people behind start someing giving details about this. mommy tibb etc. is somebody they wanted to find. people started weeping very loudly. very upset about the details of this from what they know there was a under surveillance camera.
they saw a black car and what they were able to gene from that is there was a man following mollie along. eventually he got out of the car. >> he tells us he ran alongside her or behind her. then at one point he tells us mollie grabbed ahold of her phone and said you need to leave me alone, i'm going to call police. then she took off running. he, in turn, chased her down. he confessed to this. in fact, he took them to the body just yesterday. so you can understand why people are so upset about this. now they have this man in custody, christian rivera has been charged with first degree murder. in fact, we are told he lived in this community some four-to-seven years, in fact, homeland security will give us more information in the coming days about him. we are told he is an illegal immigrant in this country, again a lot of people confused about exactly what happened. he's telling investigators he blacked out some time and maybe placed mollie in the truck. we're not sure how long her body

information for the russia investigation. mr. cohen has knowledge on certain subjects that should be of interest to the special count sell and is more than happy to tell the special counsel all that he knows, not just about the obvious possibility of a conspiracy to ka lecollude in t 2016 election, which the trump tower meeting was all about, but knowledge about the computer crime of hacking and whether or not mr. trump knew ahead of time about that crime and even cheered it on. >> all right. the plea does not include cooperation with the government. cohen likely faces three-to-five years in prison at his sanction december 12th the legal team going after what they call cohen's lice and dishonesty. >> paul manafort found guilty on
eight counts of bank and tax fraud. a mistrial declared on other charges the white house was honing for a fresh verdict to have fresh ammo in the investigation. >> that is off the table. the president praising manafort as a good man, while making sure to distance himself from his former campaign chairman. >> i still feel it's a sad thing that happened. this has nothing to do with russian collusion it started as russian collusion. this has absolutely nothing to do. it's a witch hunt, it's a disgrace. >> at a rally in west virginia last night the president whipped up the crowd with this attack on special count sell. >> russian witch hunt. we got a whole big combination. where is the collusion? you know, they're still looking for collusion. where is the collusion? find some collusion. >> despite all the devastating news for the president, his
supporters still revived that all too familiar chant from the campaign trail at the rally. this is draining the swamp off of there president trump is planning 40 days on the road, campaigning before the mid-terms. 76 days away. >> political and legal implications, let's ask the attorney for the middle district of georgia, michael moore and zach wolf. let's start with the legal. michael what does this mean as far as michael cohen, what does it mean legally for the president of the united states? >> well, i mean, trump's name was among the cohen plea, details, he is essentially involved. we know that apparently at his direction, this fec violation and this crime was conducted.
so i don't think there is any more questions about a witch hunt. he can chant at rallies. there is no more talk about. that it tells me this whom cooperation angle is very much in play. i want you to remember there are two district investigations the southern district of new york and the bob mueller investigation. those were intentionally separated by mueller so it was within his purview as he looked at russia, he didn't want to bring cohen into to it to give the president and his reporters something oto crow about. there is a rule 75 in criminal practice. a defendant can come back within a year after sentencing and cooperate with the government the government can go to the court and file a rule 35 motion and have the defendant get credit for that. the fact that there is no spelled out cooperation agreement in this plea agreement is a stroke of genius on bob mueller's part. it keeps the plea clean. it keeps the separation there which needs to be there so that
there is not, we can expect will be the detractors saying, oh, they're working together and they're the ones in colusion with each other. ki hear that now this is a better way to do it. >> zach the politics of this, in coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office trying to sway the outcome of an election by keeping two scandals out of the public eye. how cornered is the president here? >> it's obvious, i think now, if it wasn't kind of obvious before, that he was involved with all of this, that you know these efforts, according to michael cohen, to silence the porn star and a former playmate who were alleging affairs with him. that's pretty incredible stuff. now at the same time i'm not sure that trump supporters out there, the legions of them, in this country, i'm not sure they're going to be necessarily swayed by this, but it could
have a real impact on these coming november elections and if democrats enter the senate where they col things, that sort of changes the pace quite a bit. >> the gop response, do you think we will hear from paul ryan and the likes on this, or do they keep quiet? >> i don't think they will come out and hold press coppss. you can guess reporters will at every opportunity to weigh in on this. >> all right. so let's get back to this notion of a cooperation agreement. michael, because lanny davgs again to reiterate what he said. we ran it earlier. he hinted that michael con, donald trump knew about the hacking of the e-mails and cheered it on. so how does a cooperation agreement work going forward if that is the play by lanny davis
who is on "new day" later this morning. >> he would bet mob mueller know another criminal investigation. >> that is, what's going on in the mueller probe and give him some indication of what he thought he would say and i'm sure they would interview cohen. you can now bring him into the grand jury and offer immunity since essentially his plea is resolved in the southern district of new york. mueller can say, look, we want to know what happened with trump. there has already been questions of waiver of privilege. i was stunned when i heard you say and i heard reports that they were shocked and shell shocked inside the white house. i think the fortune teller at the local county fair could have read the tea leaves that michael conwas going to flip. there is no way this guy will give up his family and freedom
for someone who stabbed him in the back. i think you seen cohen move in that direction for a number of months. this has been a long time coming. >> he was stocking his life and decided to reset his life. this is what the washington post said, he represented a stung rebuke. he staffed his campaign with shady characters, fringe idea logs who never would have approached their high positions but for mr. trump's lack of judgment. you know, zach you get the duncan hunter indictment last night as well, chris collins, insider training charges. when you look at the inner circle of donald trump, the early supporters of drunk, it does not leak like drain the swatch. >> you ha-- swamp. >> you have to remember, trump had won a large number of primaries. he had very few supporters in
congress. people still didn't believe he was going to win the primary. those were two of the first people to sign on with him. you know the same with his staffers, he was unable to find the cream of the walk crop, partially because he was promising to drain the swamp. that's who ended up in his administration. >> michael, it's hard to find good news yesterday for the president. but if this had nothing to do with russia the collusion the paul manafort aspect of it. what object the notion of this as a witch hunt and that there is again no sign of collusion as we move forward? what does this mean for bob mueller? . >> i think that bob mueller was sort of acting as the composer of a great opera. he basically played the first song for us. and he told us who the characters are. he talked to us about money. he already knows how this thing will wrap up. he knows how the second trial will come out, the third trial the fourth trial, how the investigation will end or his report is going to end. so i don't really think to the
fact that the president wasn't a central figure means anything positive for the president. this will be a money case. which got no follow the money. this was the start, museumer is starting to tell us about that money coming into officials close to trump and his administration. so, you know, from good news for the president, i think there is none. i think the idea that i've heard some talk about the idea these accounts, there was a hung jury. he's looking to spend the rest of his life in prison. no good news for him yesterday. >> would appear he is playing for a pardon. it certainly sounded like the president was leaving that door opened in his remarks there. >> he called him a good man. >> the question will be, can trump stand that politically? once he does pardon, the about this, manafort has no more
student. the latest ahead. i'm a small business, but i have... big dreams... and big plans. so how do i make the efforts of 8 employees... feel like 50? how can i share new plans virtually? how can i download an e-file? virtual tours? zip-file? really big files? in seconds, not minutes... just like that. like everything... the answer is simple. i'll do what i've always done... dream more, dream faster, and above all... now, i'll dream gig. now more businesses, in more places, can afford to dream gig. comcast, building america's largest gig-speed network.
a devastating ends for mollie tibbitz, who disappeared last month jogging. they say kristen rivera accused and faces first degree murder charges one quick to pounce, kelly ward tweeted the lack of leadership by open borders, republican, mooned you, adding #build the wall. w.h.o. reports the suspect worked for years at a farm partly owned by craig lange and had been vetted through e-verify
more now from cnn's ryan young in iowa. >> this is not the ending so many in this community wanted. in fact, it's not many times you go to a news conference and have omany people behind you who start sobbing about this mollie tibb etc. was somebody people wanted to find. after we got the details we got, people started weeping very loudly, very upset from the details, they started going through hundreds of hours of that video. they saw a black car. they were able to glean it was a man following mollie along. eventually he got out of the car. >> he tells us he ran alongside her or behind her. at one point he tells us polly grabbed ahold of her phone, leave me alone, he took off running. he in turn chased her down. they say he confessed to this. in fact, they took him to the body just yesterday. now that i have this man in
custody, christian rivera has been charged with first degree murder, in fact, we are told he's lived in this community some four to seven years, homeland security will give us more information in the coming days about him. we are told he is an illegal immigrant. again a lot of people confused about what is happening. he tells versions he blacked out some time and maybe placed mollie in the trunk. not sure how long her body was out in the location he was found. we do know it was concealed. >> naumpg thank you for. that it's official. this has been the longest period of prosperity in american history the bull mark will be 3,453 days. it began in 2009, since then the dow has gained 19,000 points the s&p 500 quadrupled in value. just yesterday the s&p notched an all time high.
a few things fuelling this record run here. a slow but steady economic recovery, soaring profits, unprecedented aid from the federal reserve. they kept interest rates low. a bull market ends with a 20% loss. there have been several close calls. close call in 2011. remember when america's credit was down graded. stocks never actually fell 20%. analysts think the bull still has more room to run. bull market marks don't die of old age. there is not an expiration stamp on there. there are a few threats, trade war, rising inflation. overall the economy here quite strong. global stocks, though, mostly lower today, because u.s. politics are shaking markets here as top aides to president trump were convicted in tral court. guilty plea, guilty verdicts as well, china gearing up for
